Understanding vegetation successions in a thawing tundra
Shrub expansion is widely observed in the Arctic and is related to climate warming. However, at our field site in Siberian tundra we observe local drowning of low shrub species Betula nana (dwarf birch). Permafrost thawing can tri ...

Fire and drought resistance of Jamaicas forests; a long-term perspective
Climate change and human disturbances over the last millennia have shaped tropical forests into how we see them today. A better understanding of how tropical forests responded to these pressures in the past may help us understand  ...
